I’ve tried to tick all the boxes this week, offering a little survival horror, a little MMO and not to mention a big old dose of some familiar faces and some innovative platform gaming.
Well what are you waiting for? Oh right you want to know what’s in store? Well allow me to happily oblige you…
Gaming has been littered with successful partnerships, Banjo & Kazooie, Sonic & Tails, Mario & Luigi to name but a few, however we have had very few successful quads… Until now, doubling its numbers from 2 to 4 its Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One, offering 4-player co-op for the very first time.
Now personally I am a huge fan of the old style platformer, sit me down with a 2D Mario, Sonic or Little Big Planet and I will be gone for hours which is why this next title really took my fancy, we often look here at titles for XBLA & PSN and now its time for WiiWare to get some love, here it is with And Yet It Moves.
What I like about this next trailer is its honesty, like many sequels its happy to quote the fantastic comments lavished upon it but this title is also willing to tell us what’s wrong with the original which would appear to be the lack of multiplayer, so coming soon, with multiplayer its Torchlight II.
Heading back to Nintendo and the Wii comes the title which majority of Wii owners have been waiting to see since the launch of the Virtual Console (now WiiWare), there were many rumours, whispers and inevitable denials but at E3 this year it was confirmed, heading to Wii as a full title this year is Goldeneye 007.
The news has been rife recently with more abuse thrown at the gaming industry due to the rumoured content of the upcoming Medal of Honor, now games down the years have consistently caused uproar for their content and in 2003 one game embraced the controversy with its tagline “Banned in 13 Countries”, that game was Postal 2 and this week we take a look at the trailer for the sequel, Postal 3 which promises to keep the careful balance between humour and ultra-violence.
The final trailer this week is a PC title (although rumours are a 360 port is on the way), for those of you who haven’t had enough of an apocalyptic alien shooter fix yet from the likes of Lost Planet and Gears of War then maybe this could be right up your street, with a trailer which has left this Trailer-Gasmed viewer wondering what’s going on its The Scourge Project.
And that’s all I have for you this week, I’ve given you 4-way platforming, American Hockey mom tasering and lets not forget the trip down memory lane with Goldeneye, but that’s it for now, but fret not the next episode is just around the corner I have more great Trailers than I can shake a stick at so until next week its goodbye from me and goodbye from…. erm… well just me!
